The historic region of Fife is rightly recognised as the beating heartbeat of the game of golf, and it provides a superb setting for a golfing tour that will never be forgotten. Walking in the footsteps of the great and good is a must for all lovers of the sport’s heritage, and you can do just that when you savour the most iconic 18 holes of golf to be found anywhere on the planet.
Here is where you’ll find the most famous track of them all, the Old Course at St Andrews. There’s so much to take in when you play here, from the sumptuous old clubhouse and the views of the sea to the deceptive large greens and the forever undulating fairways. Picture yourself and your friends posing for a photo on the instantly familiar Swilken Bridge, reflecting on the last few moments of an unforgettable round of golf, one that you’ll all talk about for years to come.
It should be borne in mind as well that St Andrews itself plays host to numerous other courses that are just waiting to be savoured. They include the Castle, the New, the Jubilee and the Eden, all of them worthy of further exploration. A short distance from here you’ll also find the Fairmont Torrance Course with its glorious views of the ocean and the excellent Lundin Golf Club, where you can sample the many delights of traditional Scottish links play.
Just a short drive from St Andrews there’s the highly rated Kingsbarns Golf Links, surely as eye-catchingly beautiful as any course in the world. A regular co-host of the annual Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, it deserves to be right at the top of your wish-list. Add in historic venues like Leven, Ladybank and Elie, and you can see why Fife is such a popular choice with the world’s golfing trippers.
And when you have a little downtime to recover, why not explore everything that the area has to offer? Fife is full of interesting places to visit, including the Scottish Fisheries Museum at Anstruther, the Crail Museum and Heritage Centre and a whole host of popular attractions in St Andrews. You’ll surely want to take in the R&A World Golf Museum, the remains of the Cathedral and the St Andrews Museum. There are several golf stores to explore, too, for those who seek a little retail therapy.
Fife has long been a top destination for golfers from all over the world, each of them eager to experience the unique atmosphere of playing golf in the game’s spiritual home.

Thanks for arranging such a memorable trip. We loved all the courses but especially the Castle and Royal Dornoch. The accommodation was excellent and we appreciated all the restaurant reservations.
Overall, an excellent trip.

Hi Lynda & Stuart
We are back on home turf. We had a fantastic trip. No glitches anywhere except the rainout at County Sligo – but we can’t control the weather.
The four courses we played were all in great condition with super nice .
St Anne’s was a great start, the easiest of the four for me but a very nice lynx course.
The hotel accommodation Slieve Russell, grounds and amenities were superb.
Stuart you sure know how to put together courses for a golf tour and Lynda the accommodation at both the RIU and Slieve Russell were top notch. …great job.
Thank you for the welcoming gifts. You sure were generous.
This trip was sure worth the two year wait.
Thanks so much,
Well it was great to see you and Stuart again, that was a great evening! Thank you to both of you for an amazing trip, everyone has been talking about how great it was! It may be possible that the wives had more fun that the guys did, they’re already talking about their own golf trip without the husbands. They’ve really been bitten by the golf bug, especially my wife!!
Dear Stuart & Lynda,
A most heartfelt “Thank You” for your planning, coordinating & customer service in making our 2022 Scotland Golf Trip so memorable! Your detailed itinerary, efforts and professionalism were nothing short of “World Class” and much appreciated !
Personally, it was so enjoyable revisiting Scotland after a 20 year absence, but even more enjoyable having our group experience for the first time the magic of St. Andrews & Scotland…you have a remarkable & beautiful country.
It was a pleasure meeting you both and again appreciate your efforts to ensure we had a great vacation! We will not hesitate to refer others or use Platinum Golf for future Golf Trips…Ireland 202?
All the best for health, happiness and prosperity!
Thank u so much for looking after us overall and especially my mid-week disruption
Our arrival and playing experience at St Patrick’s Links was stellar.
The Rosapenna Thing is on par with both Bandon Dunes and Cabot Cape Breton as a one facility golfing heaven. Big brawny links tracks modernized with welcoming landing areas in the fairways.
At St Patrick’s makeshift but stylish golf shop* and checkin I had the great pleasure of netting John and Frank Casey…. So young they are, and so enthusiastic and engage-able. Lovely gents growing Rosapenna’s reputation.
So it goes .. cheers to Ireland, cheers to Platinum Golf Scotland
Stuart: The welcome package ,very thoughtful and the whiskeys are/were delicious!
We are back safely, thanks. It was lovely to see you both get together and share a We had such a good time in both Scotland and Ireland and look forward to visiting again.
The Tralee, and Waterville courses were amongst the best courses we have ever played, ranking up there with Dumbarnie and the Old course. The Island course was equally beautiful, but both of us found the dunes a challenge.
As for accommodations, we really enjoyed being in the heart of Dublin’s Temple District. Thank you for such a well planned and organized trip. We created many wonderful memories, that we’ll cherish for a lifetime. We really appreciate your help to make this trip so memorable.
Debra and I just want to send you a note thanking you for helping create a great vacation to the UK. We have a fantastic time learning and experiencing the UK.
All aspects of the trip went great in and we will not hesitate to ask you to book another trip for us in the future or to recommend you to others.
We’re on our way to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind note, I absolutely loved every minute of it, even when I was in the rough and losing balls! The program you put together was everything we could have expected and your customer service was perfect; thank you for going above and beyond…
Stuart and Platinum Golf Scotland provided a terrific itinerary for a spectacular golf and whisky (and, of course, food) experience in Scotland! The checking in, touching base, and above the call of duty service provided during our trip was great! No doubt that they would be a go to for any future travel to the UK. Thanks a bunch for making it an experience of a lifetime!
We have had a fabulous time here this week so many thanks to you and Stuart for doing a fabulous job organising it all.
